Camera Confidence is all about helping people realise who they are and what they have to offer. Empowerment comes from having the guts to give new things a go and using the support around you to make things happen for yourself. With the right attitude so much is possible if you’re willing to take a chance. What’s the worst that could happen? You get rejected in some way? A course turns out not to be what you wanted? So what? Who cares? What have you lost? In the great scheme of things you’re still alive and kicking so just pick yourself up and dust yourself down and crack on with the next challenge. People who are a success aren’t necessarily successful all the time. They are just more willing to experiment in the possibilities of what can work for them.
Our participants are working out where they want to head in life and what challenge they want to tackle next. Their goal throughout the course was to be confident enough to stand at the front and lead a presentation of their photographs. In four weeks (only 8 hours total) this could feel like a massive challenge but they achieved it. Standing and presenting yourself to your peers is not a comfortable experience but it’s a really valuable skill to have. Being able to walk into a room with your head held high and know that you are good enough is a huge boost to confidence. It makes you more employable. It makes you more able to tackle the crap that life throws at you and be able to challenge your comfort zones. It makes you more able to be the best you that you can be. You can’t get better than that can you?
